How to order your repeat prescriptions
- in person at the surgery
- by post
- by fax
A repeat prescription which has been authorised by your doctor can be requested by using the tear-off slip/counterfoil from a previous prescription (tick the items needed) or asking the reception team for a print out of the ‘right side of your prescription’. Written notes are accepted but are not a preferred option. If a note is used it should be provided in block capitals and include a full name, address, date and a list of the items needed.
The practice does not take telephone requests nor does the practice encourage the use of the post for prescriptions.
Two full working days notice (48 hours notice) is required.
Some chemists will arrange to collect regular prescriptions for you. Please ask at your regular chemist for details.
Please note – you will need an appointment with the nurse for a prescription for HRT or contraception.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.
If you have been advised by the surgery that your medication review is due please use our online form.
